TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Today Starlight Investments Capital LP ("Starlight Capital"), an independent Canadian asset management firm, became the country's newest mutual-fund and ETF provider. Starlight Capital's initial mandates will focus on providing differentiated solutions around underrepresented sectors in Canadian investors' portfolios, beginning with real assets.
Starlight Capital believes real assets, like real estate and infrastructure, provide unique portfolio diversification opportunities, and are a source of regular and growing cash-flow streams, capital appreciation and inflation protection. The Starlight Global Real Estate Fund and Starlight Global Infrastructure Fund provide investors with access to publicly listed global real assets through concentrated portfolios of high-quality businesses. The mutual funds and listed ETFs (tickers: SCGR and SCGI) will be available to investors beginning October 2, 2018.
